Politics will always break your heart.
Hunter S. Thompson said that. I kind of get what he was saying now.
It's difficult to lose, especially when the campaign got so contentious toward the end. But as bad as it is to lose, it's worse to lose in November.
And we need to get a Democrat, any Democrat, into the governor's office. Or we won't see anything get accomplished over the next four years.
So, support Dan & Nancy in November. They're going to need all the help they can get against Foley's unlimited budget and typical Republican lack of restraint when it comes to dirty campaigning. If you thought this contest was brutal, just wait for the shitstorm that will descend on the state during the next three months!
I want to thank Ned Lamont for his selfless campaign. He didn't need to run again, but he wanted to contribute and saw this as the best way to do so. I'll sleep well knowing I supported the nobler man in this contest.
And of course, I want to thank my blogging mate Kirby, who has a much longer drive home tonight than I do. She made this fun, despite the outcome.
Lastly, thank you CT Joyce, for everything.
